  • Mood:

"factcheckUK" = the Tories

So there was a Corbyn vs Johnson TV debate this evening. I've not watched it yet - might look for it on catchup later (though if The Guardian's liveblog is remotely accurate then Boris Johnson's contribution was a continuous loop of "Brexit! Brexit! Brexit!").

But the part that needs mentioning is that during the debate the Tory party rebranded their @CCHQPress Twitter press account as "factcheckUK" and used it to post blatant lies as facts.

I... there are no words for this. Other than to hope it backfires spectacularly on them.
